    If I could afford to move I would. As my grandson prepares for kindergarten next year we have attempted to learn about this school's kinder round up. All the other schools/districts in the area have already sent home information. We get no reply from district or campus level personel. There is no information on the school sign. There is no information anywhere. Trying to early vote in the district this past week was a scavenger hunt of where and when and the bond information does not fully disclose plans. The same issues plagued this district when my children attended. I would move if I could. Unfortunately I am not in a situation for that kind of change. I am a parent a teacher (another district) and a grandparent.

    Horrible principal don't bother trying to fix a problem with her she will call you and make sure you know it is all your fault regardless of the problem. Then she will blame anyone that could be blamed but never just simply say... sorry that happened we will try to make sure it doesn't happen again. The overall school seems to have a bully issue they are trying to get rid of the bully problem but when my kindergartner went to the teacher because another child licked her in the face the teacher told her not to tattle. She has also gone to the teacher for other things like pushing and teasing by other students and gets told also not to tattle. So bullying is not accepted at the school but if it happens to you don't try telling anyone because it will become your problem. Appearance the school always has broken playground equipment and they have overgrown grass and thorns in the front yards. This is also a uniform school district something I don't agree with in a public school but they are doing it because of gang issues.

    This school is the top school in the district. It has been that way now for three years in a row. The teachers have the support of their principals and the principal can count on the support by her teachers at the highest levels. The community is very supportive and understands the growing pains of an expanding school district. Many of the community members are financially strapped but have always dug deep into their pocket books to come up with the aid the school and district needs. The special programs are the best the district can offer. There are some disgruntled parents that may want to utilize the special programs but may not be eligible due to requirements or governmental restrictions to qualify for services. Unfortunately they choose to exercise their freedom of speech to demonstrate their disappointment and condemn all that is associated with the cause of their frustration.

    I homeschooled my son from K-3. When we moved into this school district we enrolled him. I have nothing but good things to say for the school. There is a carnival every year that funds the field trips. All the children can participate this year. This year my 5th grader was able to go to Science Camp which was 3 days sleep-away camp. He had a blast and learned a lot. And it seemed like all the staff knew my son's name. That is incredible considering how many children are at the school. The only thing critical I have to say is there is too much emphasis on standardized testing. But that is not the school that is the climate of the state. Wish my son could attend this school another year.

    I have taught at 5 other schools and this is by far the best! The administration and teachers and truly outstanding. The administration is definitely the most hands-on hard-working I have ever seen or heard of. My family is comprised of many teachers and they are all impressed with our school. The whole staff works as a team and is rewarded by the tremendous successes of our students. I am so grateful to be working here!

    Excellent school! Administration and teachers go above and beyond to help all the students. Majority of the parents attend activities and are involved with child's education. Administration is at all events and is caring and concerned for all students. Home visits and phone calls are made by administration! Both are easy to speak with and are available for conferences anytime I need to talk. Assistant principal is great for the school. My child knows what is expected and enjoys knowing that Crestview is a safe environment. AP doesn't send students home when they act out. They are held responsible for their actions. Teachers and administration assist with student relationships and all employees have high expectations for student discipline and quality behavior development. School is a friendly safe environment for my child and all others without bullying. Great intelligent safe and caring school!
